.: Diamonds Are A Girl's Best Friend :.

*sweeps and wipes off dust from dusty ol’ blog*

Hello all,

I know, it’s been a while.

I honestly have no excuse not to update my blog more frequently. I thought that the ½ day off every Fridays (half-day Fridays!) would mean I have more time to do more things. In a way I have – I have done spas and facials and massages and shoes-shopping and clothes-shopping and furniture-shopping and grocery-shopping and karaoke-sessions and even just plain ol’ curling up in bed with a good book. Yeap, that’s how I spend my Friday afternoons. Such bliss isn’t it?

I have also been organizing our wardrobe (dubbed Project Narnia) and have donated away a big bag of old bear wearable clothes to Jumble Station at USJ 1 just the other weekend. It’s now 93.496736% complete, with a few more drawers to clear. Main reason is so that I can fit more clothes that I plan to shop in Bangkok. Ok, I kid, I kid! :)

I have been lusting for a trinity ring. It’s actually been a long while since I wanted to one and in fact, I have already purchased a GIA loose diamond from Wah Chan during one of their many sales and a really bargain price.

I am now searching relentlessly for a nice design. I have seen a couple run-of-the-mill designs which I thought are quite nice, but isn’t exactly what I was looking for. Also, there are a couple of over-the-top designs that looks really great too, but I don’t think I’d model OTT well.

Here are a couple of designs that I like for certain bits and pieces here and there, but until I find my dream-design, I shall proceed lusting and dreaming.

I loved this design the moment I set eyes on it, it took my breath away (both the design and the price tag that comes along). It's simple, yet elegant at the same time. It will be the design I will pick if I can't find any that suits me in the end, my back-up ring so to speak

Fell in love with this baby alongside with the other Hearts on Fire design when I walked into Habib Jewellery, but after browsing thru more sites, realise that it's a tad bit too simple.

Love the unique heart-shaped prong that holds the diamonds, but not buying the fancy designs of the ring itself, just OTT for my liking.

Love the design of the top most ring, where the split curves then meet. Reminds me of the infinity symbol.

.: Malaysia, Tanahairku :.

In view of the very much talkabout coming 13th General Election of my beloved contry, my tanahair, I believe I need not spam you with anti-BN or anti-PR propagandas (as if getting spammed silly everytime one logs in to Facebook is not enough!). Instead, a few excerpt from a few good articles or opinions written, either pro government or pro opposition, that is worthy to share. Food for thoughts, if you like.

I am a 3rd generation Malaysian. I've sung Negaraku every Monday for 12 years in school and I know the Rukunegara by heart. All my family is in Malaysia and I do not have any affliations to China. I don't even know how to read and write in Chinese and my Cantonese is atrocious. I only love one country. This country. And if it comes down to it, will only shed blood for one country. This country.

My dear friends, we are the same. It doesn't matter what our ethnicity is. We are Malaysians. We went to the same school. We played the same games. We enjoy the same amount of public holidays. We have the same memories. Most importantly, we share the same home. Neither of us are more Malaysian than the other. Neither of us should be made to feel that way.

Our parents, our grandparents, perhaps their views were marred by differences as they did not grow up together. Perhaps they felt distrust because they were not privileged like us to live in times of better integration. Perhaps they've told us things, from their point of view. But it doesn't make them right. We should know better. We've lived it and we are still living it. We know we can trust each other. We are friends.

If we want to ‘ubah’ for better, it’s better to start with ourselves. If we are unwilling to get out of the walls of bigotry we unknowingly build around ourselves, our families and our communities; there will always be politicians who tell us nice ideals and sweet promises. We always talk about unity, equality and harmony; but how many Malays, Chinese and Indians are willing to agree to close down religious and vernacular schools, knowing well that these are hampering national unity effort? How many parents are willing to encourage their children to mix with other races; or to read texts of other religions to gain a better understanding of other religions? How many of us are willing to accept if our children marry person from another race; and convert to another religion? Once we have changed ourselves, a new generation of politicians will then come up; hopefully to push for positive ideals such as real care of the environment, real gender equality and real nation building….
